And I shopped!

It was a sad day in my shoe closet today. I finally had to face the fact that my leapord flats (you'll see them here) had gone to shoe heaven, and I had to throw them away. So, to console myself it was really necessary to find something to replace them. May I introduce to you my new animal print flats:

I'm thinking maybe they're faux cheetah, yes? They'll be great to wear to work, and I think I'll do just that tomorrow :-)

And when I got home from picking up the kids today ... some parcels greeted me at the doorstep. Clearly I was carried away with a bout of clickage recently. It's usually a temporary affliction, sometimes prompted by emailed newsletters and the like. Note to self: Unsubscribe more often.

No buyers remorse here though, I'm loving these fabrics, and the book is just delightful. And speaking of books, I'm dying to get my hands on Bonnie Hunter's new book ... must pace myself though :-)

And lest you think I've been slacking off in the sewing department ... there has been much progress. I've a magazine commission to work on in a bit of a rush, so yesterday I made about a bazillion half square triangles (or maybe 230ish) so I've got about 50 more to go. If I don't get any more done tonight, I can't see myself working on them again until at least Wednesday, and then I'll give you a sneaky peek. We'll chatter soon okay? xox

We're all prone to bouts of clickiness. It's not curable, but it is forgivable, so you can continue! Hehehe.
